When I first started entertaining the idea of a blog, I did a ton of research. What forum do I use? Where the heck do I even start? What do I blog about? After learning a ton, I searched good ideas for blog posts. I was curious what was considered “good content.” I have to say, I wasn’t really impressed. Many of the suggested topics were really negative! Anyone who knows me knows my blog is all about the positive, fun things in life. There was one particular idea that stood out to me and it has been in the back of my mind for quite a while.
This idea was, “Tell one of your in-laws exactly what you think of them! (as long as they don’t know you are writing a blog about them!)” What?! I don’t know if it is that I am fortunate enough to have really awesome in-laws or if that many people in this world don’t get along with theirs. Either way, I have to say I am really quite blessed to have the family I have!
So I have decided to “tell one of my in-laws exactly what I think of them.”
To my very favorite mother-in-law, you have been not only a source of knowledge for me but you are someone who I hope to be like one day. Your love for your family truly makes me speechless. The look on your face when you see your grand kids lets me know that you aren’t ignoring me, but the entire world melts away the second they enter the room. Thank you for loving them that much!
You have always treated me like one of your own children and I am grateful that you give me that opportunity every day. Your have a strength that I don’t know yet. You have the courage to say what you’re thinking and an opinion that is heard. I don’t have that much courage just yet but someday, I hope to have the same wisdom and strength you do.
When I first met you, I was so nervous because I really liked this hot dude I met at a bar and I really wanted you to like me! I never thought we would get along as well as we do! Thank you so much for all you do for us. Thank you for taking care when we need you, giving us that little extra push that we wouldn’t give ourselves and thank you SO much for loving us all as much as you do. We are truly blessed to have you in our lives and I am so proud to call you my other mom! Love you!
